Student’s ‘Grant Writing’ course benefits Head Start children

Ashley Singiser, a Slippery Rock University adapted physical activity graduate student from Oakdale, was required to apply for a grant as part of her “Grant Writing” course and children in Grove City have reaped the benefits.

Singiser’s application received $1,000 in funding from SRU’s Adapted Physical Activity Program, with the money used to purchase developmentally appropriate physical education equipment for the Mercer County Head Start hosted at the Grove City Highland Primary Center.

The equipment, including floor mats, tricycles, helmets, hula hoops, cones, poly spots, jump ropes and other items, was recently delivered. Singiser also provided teachers at the facility with a series of lesson plans for using the new equipment.

Slippery Rock University is Pennsylvania's premier public residential university. Slippery Rock University provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that intentionally combines academic instruction with enhanced educational and learning opportunities that make a positive difference in their lives.
